Review: ¨Prisoners¨

Review: ¨Prisoners¨

I was dying to watch this movie, because I loved the trailer and I love Hugh Jackman, (Keller Dover), and I love Jake Gyllenhaal, (Detective Loki).

While watching the trailer, I thought that this movie would be an intense thriller, and I wasn’t wrong. I liked it. It is an intense thriller. Which I enjoyed it. I only thought it was very long and slow. I thought the movie was taking four hours to finish, but when it did finished I couldn’t get enough. I wanted more and more.

The movie is about Keller Dover’s, (Jackman), daughter. She is kidnapped, and that’s when the real intense moments starts. As I said this movie is slow, but it provides amazing acting from the part of the cast, and it is a privileged cast. It also provides special moments of excitement and rush. That kind of rush that fulfills your body, asking for more. And that is what every movie should cause. That emotion of desire.

So, I thought it was a very enjoyable film, even though it could have been a little bit more fast on the details. But whatever, I’m no good at gathering details and not even understanding them. But I recommend this one, if you are looking for a slow-paced-but-awesome-kind-of-film this is the one.

Review: “Thor: The Dark World”

First of all, I’m not going to make this movie feel like poop. The first one…probably…but that’s not the point right now.
The point right now is how this movie entertained me. I really enjoyed it. There was a part of the movie that caught me a little bit bored, but then it picked me up with emotion and excitement.

Tom Hiddleston as Loki, is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m not saying that is a joke, his character is funny. Even though he is a villain he is one of my favorite Marvel characters. And trust me.. I have large list of favorite characters. I’m going to miss him for a long time.

The special effects were outstanding. I’m glad that this time Malekith, (villain), decided to attack London and not America… because everything happens in America… (pretty stupid point, sorry…).

“Thor: The Dark World”, entertains you to a point that it can no longer entertain, and if I said it was boring sometimes, I apologize. Thor is not my favorite hero in Marvel, but the movie changed my mind I think…

It gives you entertainment, action, fun moments, and a twisted-more-likely-what-is-going-on ending.

Watch it, you won’t regret it.

Review: “Gravity”

My first thought about the movie while watching the trailer was; “Extremely exaggerated”. And then reading the reviews about the movie in Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which were good. It got me wanting to see the movie. And it surprised me.

I am speechless about Sandra Bullock’s performance in the movie. About the way that she basically led the entire film. She was splendid. So was George Clooney, he kept the balance of the movie. He was the funny character. While Sandra Bullock, was the survival character. And the gravity, the destruction itself.

The special effects left me breathless. But what I most liked about this movie was the emotion that caused to me. Hopelessness and despair. All at once. It was like I was inside the movie. Feeling the same thing as Sandra Bullock was feeling. Like I was an invisible character, right there. And I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. I am amazed that Alfonso Cuarón accomplished that.

But answer me that… how would you feel being alone in space, with no oxygen, with no communication and God knows how many kilometers apart from gravity and earth? I rather die. Seriously.

I find it funny when people come to me and say that this movie “sucks”, but the truth is that they don’t get the perfection of it. I’m glad that I got to experienced one of the best movies made in space, and if not the best.

One thing is for sure, I will get very angry if Sandra Bullock doesn’t win the Oscar for Best Actress. She deserves it.

Just…Written Papers!

Just...Written Papers!

YA novels. Yes! Everyone, (most people), enjoy a good book. And who, (again…most people), doesn’t?

I remember the time that I hated to read, and now I thank God and my mother, that I love to read. Everything comes with reading and then picturing the characters and the surroundings of that marvelous book. But, there’s one thing…Just ONE thing…that could or couldn’t ruined it all…MOVIES.

I love movies, if I didn’t why would I own a blog about that topic? But I love to read and when I read a book, I casually ask myself if this piece of art, turns into a movie, “Who would be the actors to play the characters?” But lately, I’ve realized that since “Harry Potter” or “The Lord of The Rings” is not on the movie theater, production companies started to buy the rights for each book like crazy. And come on people, if you are going to ruin a book who has a fan base behind it, don’t buy the rights. Because we, fans, would love to see the books that we love coming to “real life”. And if you ruin it, we will hunt you down and kill you. Like some people did with “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”, “Beautiful Creatures”, “Twilight”, (even though it was a terrible book to start with). But fans love their books and they want their books to be successful. How would you like to read a book, and you love it and suddenly that book turns into a shitty movie, and you keep thinking, “Why would they do that?” or “Now I feel stupid, because everyone will criticize my book” , but that’s okay you just need to punch them really hard on the face…so they’ll stop talking.

I’m happy to see that a trilogy that I’ve read has turned into a major film, yep, I’m talking about “The Hunger Games”. And I’m proud to say to people, “Hey, I’ve read that book, and you should do it too.”

There is one book that I’ve read and I really love it and I think everyone should read it. It’s called “Divergent”. I’m anxious and scared to watch the movie, but I am expecting something great. Not only because there are amazing actors in that movie, (Kate Winslet, I’m talking to you. But Theo, Shailene, Maggie Q,… okay! I loved the ENTIRE cast! And the director.)

I don’t actually know what my point is in this post, I really don’t. I just wanted to let my opinion out. And my opinion is… Don’t buy the rights to a book if you are going to turn it into a dreadful, awful, hideous movie.

Just one more thing, click at the photo of “Divergent” to watch the trailer. It’s good, but they could have done it a better trailer. So expect the second trailer because I just can’t wait. But click on it and watch it.

Review: ¨Instructions Not Included¨

Review: ¨Instructions Not Included¨

Couple of weeks ago I watched this movie. I wasn’t excited to watch it but my friends insisted. I didn’t love the movie. Would I watch it again? No, I wouldn’t.

Did I laugh? Yes, I did. Did i cried? Almost. Yeah it’s a sad story. For being a mexican movie, it was good. I’m glad it wasn’t that typical dramas that everyone laughs at in mexican soap operas.

To be a movie presented for the United States they could have done much better. It has a great story. Actually, it’s a beautiful story between father and daughter.

Eugenio Derbez is supposed to be one of Mexico’s greatest comedy actors, but this movie didn’t made him justice. Probably it was funny. But I’m not mexican to know the inside jokes. But I lived in Mexico enough to know that this movie has lack of entertainment. I’m just saying it could have been better. The film has material for it. It just didn’t show it.

I don’t know how to put it this way, but if you want to spend your money in this movie, go on. You might like it, you might not. It depends on you.

Review: ¨The Bucket List¨

Review: ¨The Bucket List¨

This movie has left me speechless. I love Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. Putting them up together in a film was an incredible idea. They are both legends, and this movie isn’t the only one who proves it.

At the beginning of the movie we find an extremely smart guy, who Morgan Freeman portrays so nicely. Then we have Jack Nicholson, a rich man, who has everything but has nothing at the same time. Then we find them at the hospital, both with terminal cancer. And in that hospital a special bond starts to form. That lead them into an adventure to fulfill their Bucket List, before their life is over.

I loved this movie, and I honestly think that delivered a very special message. ¨Live your life to the fullest.¨

Review: “We’re The Millers”

How can I start? I had one of the best times of my life watching this movie! When I first watched the trailer I wasn’t so convinced, I thought it would be an “okay-movie”. But this surprised me! I enjoyed every single bit of the film.

I went to watch it with my mom, and she wasn’t very convinced about the movie. She didn’t want to watch it. But when we entered the room, and the lights turned off, and when the movie began,…she had a pretty good time. She was laughing like crazy, and so was I.

“We’re The Millers”, it’s a movie that I want to watch it again and again and again. Jennifer Aniston did a fantastic job, so did Jason Sudeikis, but I had more fun watching Will Poulter making this “loser-virgin-stupid-kid”. Emma Roberts did an “okay-performace” but she is great, I love her even though she likes to hit her boyfriend, (Evan Peters).

So don’t say; “I won’t watch it because the “professional-reviews” says that sucks.” Just go to the movie theater to have a good time, and this movie is worth your time.

Review: “Kick-Ass 2”

ImageI finally got to watch “Kick-Ass 2”! I’m happy for that and I’m sorry for the movie. I hated it. What a BIG disappointment. I was looking forward for this movie, and look how a big failure it was. Kill me. Seriously kill me. 

Was it funny? Sure, like a 55% of funny moments.

Does it entertain you? Yep…

So why am I saying that I hated it? Because the movie is exaggerated on its extreme. I don’t care if they were doing exactly as the comic. I would have filmed the first one only. The first one is the best. 

Another thing, if Jim Carrey didn’t like his own movie, why the hell did he do it?  

In the first one you could enjoy each character development throughout the movie, in this one, nothing. What happened to the other characters? Where’s Evan Peters? Where’s Lyndsy Fonseca? She just appeared like one time, to say: “Dave you were sleeping with a middle-schooler?! We’re done!” And that was it.. 

If you liked the first one, just watch the second one, to watch the epilogue of Kick-Ass.

Shadowhunters To Take Over!

Shadowhunters To Take Over!

A week ago I went to watch the movie, again. And I have to say I truly enjoyed it!

Probably I went with other perspective of the film. But a second watch to the movie changed my whole perspective of my first review. And it changed it for good.

As I said, I am a big fan of the saga. The books are absolutely incredible.

I love the characters, I love the story, I love everything that has to do with it. I just don’t love the director. (Sorry Harald). But he did a “good” job.

My favorite part of the film, it’s when they are at the Hotel Dumort. They fight the vampires, but a badass song comes in, and is AWESOME. Perfect song, and perfect fight.

If you haven’t watched the movie, please go. Probably you won’t like it. Probably you will. But it’s something new to watch. Don’t compare this movie with “Twilight”. Because “Twilight” sucks. “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” it’s a fun watch, and it’s worth it.
